Activities from Victoria Falls

Jump to last reply

I've been looking at the activities commonly offered by the falls, and finding them generally not to be to my taste. So I thought I was ask for some advice here. I have most of an afternoon, arriving a bit after 1PM into the airport, and then the entire next day.

I will definitely want to go to the park and see the falls by foot, but presumably that's only a few hours, maybe filling up my first afternoon. Throw in a helicopter trip, perhaps. But I'm not a shopper by nature, so I don't expect to be very interested in the towns, and besides I'm going to be fighting strict baggage weight restrictions and so can't take any souvenirs with me anyway.

I also don't tend to be an adrenaline junkie, so the bungee-drops are right out. And I'm not comfortable with canoeing and white water rafting in an area where safety enforcement, not to mention insurance and quality health care, is so lacking. An evening cruise sounds pleasant enough, but again I'm not interested in a booze-cruise as I've seen others here describe them.

So, any suggestions? Any whole-day trips that would take me away from the falls proper? I would love to be inspired by something.

Finally, two side-questions:

1. Any opinions on use of a laptop while in a hotel, such as by the pool or lobby? I know I'm assumed rich just by being western but I don't know if a laptop is pushing it too far, given the state Zimbabwe is in.

2. Who has the best meals in VicFalls?

Thanks!
